Le Nimba De N' Zerekore - Gon Bia Bia (1980)

I was going to start delving into obscurity by posting an album by the Argentinian folk singer Atahualpa Yupanqui, because I have an album of his that I have enjoyed thoroughly for the last few years. I noticed that I only had a 128-copy of it though, and as I'm trying to keep this blog free of bad quality copies (although it doesn't really matter in these cases: most of these are vinyl rips anyway), a moral dilemma occurred and I have decided to share this fantastic African group from Guinea.

Their music is, as you will expect, very rhythmical and just plain funky. I hear some Caribbean influences as well, it sounds familiar to the calypso at times. Very enjoyable, and totally unknown.
